Really, now. I am not coming on here to defend Christie. Sorry, but I expect him to pull a Bloomberg and switch parties at some point to retain power.
His keynote speech at the Republican National Convention is indefensible. It was an exercise in narcissism. As if HE was running for president. Strike 1.
He performed fell-atio on Obama while getting it from behind from Axelrod, pulling Obama's irons out of the fire in the process. And branding himself a Judas. Strike 2.
He considers himself too good for a portion of the electorate and based on strikes 1 and 2, just looks like a blowhard elitist. Fifth Column, future Democrat.
